“Emerson and Kerouac: Grievous Angels of Hope and Loss” Philosophy Americana: Making Philosophy at Home in American Culture Douglas R. Anderson Fordham University Press, New York 2006 The chapter talks about three individuals whose works had a great influence on American culture: Emerson, Kerouac and Gram Parson. The chapter uses Parson`s song “Return of the Grievous Angel” in order to bring into discussion the roles hope and loss play in the writing of Emerson and Kerouac. Together with folk-poet Thomas S. Brown, Gram Parson wrote a song named “Return of the Grievous Angel”, which was at one level a cross-country trucking story and, at another level, it was Elvis` transition from country to Las Vegas, as Anderson observes.

Poe believes that stories that dealt with gothic literature needed to have allegories in them to have a second level of meaning in addition to it’s literal meaning. Theses types of elements were popular in this time period because they taught moral lessons and contributed to the dark feeling a person undergoes when finding the true meaning of not only the story, but are able to personally understand the true feeling the author is trying to make individuals feel. In “The Tale and Its Effect”, Poe stated that he used and supported unity of effect to go about discussing the themes he embedded within his stories in order to make the reader to feel a certain way. He believes that they need to be short and sweet so that the author can get all the details to the reader. Poe exclaims that short stories are superior to novels because one is able to sit down and finish it in one-sitting rather than breaking the experience, with the possibility of forgetting important elements.
“Digging” by Seamus Heaney was published in 1966 in his first collection “Death of a Naturalist” (Heaney 7) and is one of his first poems. It is permeated with a sense of the natural world and family tradition. The short poem is full of rhyme and sound effects. They are typical features of the Seamus Heaney poetry. “Digging” shows how people can be rooted in a family, tied to traditions and to a home place.
To convey the brutality and animosity of “The Troubles”, Seamus Heaney expressed his thought-provoking opinions in the form of poetry. His collection of poems called “North” specifically portray the violent and hatred of The Troubles during 1968 to 1998. The Troubles refer to the sectarian warfare and division between the United Kingdom and Ireland. During this time period, political infighting occurred and caused conflicts that eventually lead to a bloody and brutal war. The North collection utilises various historical context while also stylistically allude to the bygone era of the Vikings and the discovery of the bog bodies of the Northern Europe in order to emphasise the endless occurrence of brutality and violent events.
8-10) explores the delicacy and gentleness of the emotion and emphasises the general mystical mood. The feeling is something that unites souls “zart” (tenderly). Here again, Schönberg changed a word, possibly by accident. This time, the change in meaning is subtler, as the two words can almost be used synonymously. “Verbünden” (to ally, to unite) is perhaps stronger in meaning as it implies an effort and a goal, whereas “verbinden” (to connect) implies a possible passiveness.
The poem Two Lorries was written by Seamus Heaney an Irish poet born in Northern Ireland, precisely in County Derry, on April 13, 1939. He was one of the most remarkable authors of that time, which dealt with topics of violence and social issues as well as nature and Ireland history, which demonstrates the variety of his work. Heaney was awarded with a Nobel Prize in the field of literature, by 1995 since his work was of lyrical beauty and ethical depth, which exalt everyday miracles and the living past. Seamus marked study on the role of sorrow in Ireland’s political atmosphere during the Troubles; a meditation on the personal effect of the Troubles on the citizen population, and should be read as the physical death of human life, the death of Ireland’s pastoral innocence, and the death of childhood to the abrupt nature of violence. By the time he was 74 he died on the 30 of August in Dublin.

Causes of the war included attempts of British to restrict American trade and its desire to expand its territory. Nonetheless, American troops were able to repulse British invasions and the American government began to see itself as a major military power, gaining a sense of nationalism. This eventually lead to the Hartford Convention which was a series of meetings in which the New England Federalist Party joined to discuss their criticism about the War of 1812 and the political problems which came from the federal government 's increasing
It’s a practise very commonly used in paganism and wicca as well as a great tool for our magical work.

In the poem “Sonrisas” by Pat Mora, the poet uses word connotations, onomatopoeia, and alliteration to convey that some people in this world are more genuine than others. Right at the start of the poem, the author describes “[living] in a doorway/between two rooms.” In the first room, the author experiences “careful women in crisp beige/suits, quick beige smiles.” These two lines heavily rely on the word “beige” and its connotations. Beige means a yellowish brown color and is associated with offices, among other places, thus giving it a connotation of being very standard.
